Choosing a poison from the ants in the apartment ...

Fighting small red ants in the house is a rather complicated matter. In order for ants poison in an apartment to be effective, it is necessary not only to choose the right means, but also to strictly observe the requirements of the instructions for its use, as well as to take into account some features of the biology of the ants themselves.

It is interesting

Red ants are known to be able to organize so-called supercolonies, combining several separate nests with several queens in each. It will be difficult to destroy such a colony, distributed throughout the apartment building, even in the ideal case, when all the neighbors are inflamed with the desire to get rid of these pests.

So, before corroding ants from the apartment, it is necessary to decide on the choice of an insecticidal agent.For example, aerosol preparations are relatively toxic (they will inevitably have to breathe), but they allow you to get rid of ants in a matter of hours. And insecticidal gels, for example, are very easy to use, but they will have to poison the ants in the apartment for at least a few weeks.

When choosing a remedy for ants, it is necessary to consider a number of features of the drug.

All of these, as well as some other features of the use of various types of insect repellents, should be well known even before ant attacks begin indoors. Let's take a closer look at these subtleties ...


How to choose the right poison: a quick guide

Choose a particular tool is necessary first of all, taking into account the level of its security and its own requirements for the time to get rid of ants. If there are children or pets in an apartment infected with ants, then it is better to purchase low-toxic products - insecticidal gels and sticks, or use boric acid.

Before poisoning ants in an apartment, it is necessary to assess the degree of its infection with insects. It is necessary to acquire the most lethal aggressive means only in the most neglected cases. If the ants are not very many - do not chase after superefficiency,as it is often associated with increased toxicity of the drug for humans.


Crayons and dusts for baiting ants

The composition of these funds usually includes a potent insecticide, low toxicity to warm-blooded animals. The principle of their action lies in the fact that insects, stained in powder or particles of fine, cleaning themselves, will swallow the poisoned particles.

Recently, however, several agents have appeared on the market that also have a contact effect on insects: the active substance will penetrate the outer chitinous integument of the soiled ant in them.

It should be borne in mind that the crayons and dusts are designed for a long, but rather simple and quite effective fight against insects.

Against ants, even the most powerful aerosols can only have a temporary effect. This is due to the fact that the means is poisoned only by working individuals moving in an apartment.

Folk recipes from domestic ant poison

Effective baiting of ants in an apartment can be carried out by making baits from ordinary and affordable folk remedies.

In addition, you can scare the ants. Red pests do not tolerate the smell of parsley, bay leaves, cabbage leaves, wormwood, wild mint, the smell of onions, garlic, lemon and spicy cloves. They do not like the smell of vegetable oil, so it is recommended to lubricate the edges of the dishes and food bags.


“So I remember that my grandmother from ants constantly laid out wormwood and mint in the corners of the house. I do not know how effective it is. I tried to sprinkle a clove in the apartment (they say ants are afraid of it), and they definitely became smaller. However, they did not completely disappear, and they had to finish off the cans. ”

Ordinary yeast is another excellent poison for domestic ants. In places, chosen by the ants, it is necessary to place the saucers with a thick yeast mass, to which honey or sugar is added.

Red ants can also be controlled with borax and boric acid.

Boric acid is an effective poison for ants

To do this, there are several popular recipes:

  • dry bait. For its preparation it is necessary to mix boric acid and sugar, and then scatter the resulting powder in the habitats of insects.
  • Liquid bait: 5 g of boric acid, 50 g of sugar, 50 ml of hot water and half a teaspoon of jam (to give the bait a special flavor) mix and pour on clean plates. After placing in areas where insects are most often.
  • Potato balls. For cooking, you need to take 1 package of boric acid (10 grams), 3 chicken eggs and 3 medium potatoes.Cooked porridge from boiled potatoes and yolks, add boric acid and a teaspoon of sugar. Thoroughly mix the whole mass and roll it into small balls.Using boric acid can be used to make poison baits.
  • Meat balls: 2 tablespoons of minced meat and half a teaspoon of dry boric acid, mix and cook the balls.

On a note

Any poison against ants must be placed in such a way that it is not accessible to children and pets. Neither borax nor boric acid are dangerous in themselves, but taking into account that the baits do not lie in the cleanest places of the room, but insects that run an hour ago may have been feeding in the rubbish chute, such a ball fell into children's hands all the time fraught with communication with doctors.


How to kill ants for sure

Before you buy a poison for ants, you need to organize a general cleaning of the entire apartment. Ideally, baiting ants should be combined with general repairs: even if the nest of insects is outside the dwelling, and in the apartment they are only looking for food, it is easier to treat the apartment with insecticidal preparations.

It should be borne in mind that the red ants are able to penetrate from everywhere, including the outer wall of the building and the ventilation shafts.Often, even the most diligent persecution of ants in an apartment does not work if carried out by one tenant in a single apartment.

With severe infection and the presence of ants in most of the apartments in the house, you can buy poison from the ants in concert with your neighbors. But in this situation, it is best to resort to professional help from the staff of the Sanitary and Epidemiological Station, which will help to completely get rid of insects at any scale of disaster.

      In 3 apartments he personally brought boric acid, both cockroaches and ants. So much for the bullshit.

      • Olga:

        Nonsense is your boric acid! I used it in different ways - and liquid poison, and all sorts of katala balls, and just slept with powder. Everything is in vain - they eat, grow and multiply!

      • Anonymous:

        Boric acid does not work, checked! Don't even waste time and money.

    Aa wound up after all 🙁

  3. Alexander:

    Site and articles helpful. I learned a lot of interesting and useful. But there is one thing. For example, the recommended "proven" online store "Without insects" is probably not the most reliable. Thanks to your site, I chose the right tool for me, on March 5 I made an order with them, I immediately paid for it completely. It has been more than two weeks, and the order has not been shipped, they are fed breakfast. Be careful, in any case, in this store you should not make an advance payment! If the parcel is not in transit, I will seek a refund.

  4. Marina:

    We had ants at home a year ago. They were so small in size and lived, so to speak, under baseboards, in inaccessible places. I had to all promazyvat Masha (small). It's just awful how many there were. Besides, they are still some food lovers. Climb into the closet with linen and spoil everything, multiply there.

  5. Just a woman:

    I used to poison ants with a mixture of boric acid, yolk and potatoes, it was so great.They probably spent a day carrying this mixture with the whole colony, and then after two or three days they disappeared. I was so happy, but since it was an apartment building, after a year and a half they appeared again. They are such clever creatures, no matter how much I poison them with boric acid, adding it to fresh mince, then to jam, etc. They don’t even come close to it anymore. Now I do not know what to do. She processed kitchen cabinets and “mashine” walls, it really helps - she left the cabinets, but she still climbs all the time. On the tile run. Now she poured honey with yeast. We'll see.

  6. Konstantin:

    The best option - lay out the pieces of minced meat with onions. Ants flock to him in droves. It is only important to turn off the light in the room (they go out in the dark), and check after a couple of hours, by letting down such traps immediately into the toilet. So in a couple of weeks you can exterminate thousands of ants.
